Clever and well worth seeing to see how Bugs outwits the thugs
7 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The cartoon does start off slowly, and the secondary characters are a little clichéd, especially the Irish cop. But it is very clever and funny, with Bugs excellent as usual and the gangster a nice little addition. Coupled with beautiful artwork, a good script, some funny gags-especially the oven gag- and nice music this really is worth seeing especially to see how Bugs outwits the thugs. By the way, the title of the short is a very effective touch, and Mel Blanc is stellar yet again.

Overall, while a little slow and clichéd, this is clever and funny and compensated by the usual ingredients that make these cartoons so enjoyable. 8/10 Bethany Cox
